Weather Policy

Stage and site setup for each Friday Night on White takes a dedicated crew working all day. As a result, the Town of Wake Forest is committed to providing Friday Night on White rain or shine.

We will always do our best to make sure the show goes on as planned, but safety is our first priority. If weather threatens to become dangerous to our performers, crowds and staff, a concert may be delayed or canceled altogether - depending on the severity of the weather. 

In the event of potentially severe weather prior to the start of a concert, a decision on whether to proceed will be announced no later than 3 p.m.

  • Weather-related updates will be posted on the Friday Night on White web page and the Town of Wake Forest Facebook page.

  • Smart phone users who have downloaded the Town of Wake Forest app will receive a push notification message informing them of any schedule changes.

  • Updates will also be available by calling the Wake Forest Weather Line at 919-435-9569.

In the event of severe weather conditions during a concert, announcements will be made from the stage concerning the status of the event. We ask all attendees to remain calm and listen for these announcements.

We try to make the best informed decision possible, but hey...this is North Carolina after all.
